How California’s SB 592 Would Allow For Greater Housing Shelter in California
“How would SB 592 by Senator Scott Wiener expand the amount of shelter in California?”
California is suffering under the strains of one the worst housing crises in its history, forcing many vulnerable individuals out onto the streets or unsafe housing. However, by increasing the amount of accessory-dwelling units (ADUs) in stock, more small square-footage low-cost housing can be put into the pipeline and allow for greater societal resilience. Senate bill SB 592 by Scott Wiener does exactly this by making ADUs protected by the Housing Accountability Act, which forces cities to approve housing that meets zoning guidelines.
